The Arsenal manager was dealt some relief in Italy on Wednesday as his side secured a place in the Champions League group stages and escaped any more gloomy headlines with an eventful 2-1 win over Udinese.
Despite the Gunners’ impressive result, there were still glitches apparent in Wenger’s side which will need repair, but the Arsenal boss claims he is yet to find what he is looking for in the transfer market.
Wenger admits he is still in search for a new player, but he is remaining tight-lipped for now.
“We work very hard on signings but if you look at the players we had tonight they were top class. [Does that mean you won’t make any signings?] There may be signings but I cannot lie and say we will sign someone tomorrow because it is not true. We try.” Wenger said
The Gunners boss ‘ agrees that Arsenal’s transfer business may be easier after securing a Champions spot but Wenger is still counting much on his current options in the squad.
“It is a little bit easier, but it is not easy to find players of the calibre that we have lost.”I expect to, of course, but at the moment I am very happy if we get (Abou) Diaby back in midfield and a few others that are out.
“We have too many players missing, but you will see that we have a very good squad.”
French news source L’Equipe claimed today that Arsenal have made a bid of €25 million for Rennes’ midfielder Yann M’Vila.
